Summer time is here, and one of my favorites for the season is chicken salad.
|That is a BIG bowl of chicken and celery!|
You undoubtedly have your favorite recipe for chicken salad. This one, though, comes straight from Betty Crocker
CHICKEN SALAD FILLING
1 cup chopped cooked chicken (Thank goodness for the food processor!)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup mayonnaise
- Blend all together. Refrigerate. 1 1/2 cups, enough for 4 or 5 sandwiches.
I do not plan sandwiches with this for today, though. There will be crackers to accompany the chicken salad, and other items on the plate will be a pea and carrot casserole and fruited gelatin.
Now - to this "mystery."
|What was this?|
|After beating up this frosting....|
|Yes! A Strawberry Cake!|
No, the strawberries didn't come from our few plants, though we DID have about four cups total from those plants. These strawberries were the ones The Husband bought when a neighbor came by the house. Those strawberries have been used in other ways, and that is what you will see in the next post.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.

Pleasure to meet you, Nellie!
Oh, yes! I love chicken salad, and am especially thankful for the food processor that a certain special sister gave me a few years ago! Thank you again! That menu sounds wonderful for this time of year, and those day care folks are blessed to have you cooking for them today. My chicken salad recipe is different, including a small can of crushed pineapple, but yours is delicious! Have a wonderful day! :-)ReplyDelete
